Re: New Boat Name. Need help

When in France.... the name "Fort Eclair" or "ForÍt claire" might cause jiggles and a lot of confusion :-)

"Fort et claire" means loud and clear.

Mention it just for the fun of it.

I love the Boaty McBoatface story. It gives me hope that the human race isn't turning beige.

In my defence I was left without adequate supervision !

Re: New Boat Name. Need help

I am a bit old fashion with my boat names. My current boat is Cochise. I tend to stick to American Indian names theme. Not confusing and always original.

My fall back is to name the boat after my wife. Helps with the " honey lets go sailing on your boat"
